FSIO Practice aids and conference

On behalf of the FSIO, the BFH is working with experts by experience and specialists on practical aids for the implementation of participation projects in poverty reduction and prevention and the design of the 2020 national conference.



Practice shows: Measures to prevent and combat poverty are more effective when people at risk of and affected by poverty participate in such measures or when their concerns and experiences are considered (to a greater extent).

Course of action

The FSIO project "Participative Models" resulted in recommendations for the implementation of the models, which will be elaborated in the project "Practical Aids" with affected persons and political municipalities and discussed at the conference gegenarmut.ch 2021.

This project contributes to the following SDGs
